Well, we came home 36 hours after we left. Samuel is ALWAYS happier at home. But, he was so cute with the nurses while we were in the hospital. He didn’t want them to touch him, but he would smile at them and watch them and give them cute little looks here and there. He’s thrown up a lot since we came home, so I put him on some anti-nausea medication today and it seems to have done the trick. He was also still constipated despite several suppositories and 2 enemas. But a little milk of magnesia and we solved that problem tonight. Yay!
I swear the kid is Superman. I gave him pain medication until this morning, but I’m not even sure he was much in need of it. Now he is just on regular doses of tylenol and ibuprophen and doing great on those. He’s happy (although he is holding still more than usual - unless I try to change him or anything and then he’s moving MORE than usual.) He’s cute as can be - smiling at me everytime I go in his room and laughing whenever I talk to him like he loves me to entertain him. I sure love that kid.
I have to say that I had some strong feelings that everything would go very well with this surgery. But I allowed myself to be worried despite those feelings. I am humbled by how well it all went. We couldn’t have been more blessed. Thank you for all your prayers, fasting and blessings. We were definitely watched over!
Here’s the only picture I took while we were there. Luckily we brought the portable DVD player since he had a specific position he wanted to lay in :).
